“Crazy In Love” Was the “Perfect Fit” for ‘50 Shades’ Trailer

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan on the set of '50 Shades of Grey'Boots says Beyonce's "Crazy In Love" was the perfect fit for the 50 Shades Of Grey trailer.

The producer - who created the trailer's soundtrack (seen after the jump) - chose to rework the singer's hi-tempo anthem into a slower, more sultry tune and says it was the best choice for the S&M movie.

"It just fits. I like to think of myself as more than just a producer. I look at what we did for the trailer and this version of the song is, very much in my opinion, a score. It was something that I consciously scored. Whenever it comes to the stuff that Bey and I do, I'll never speak for her, but I think that she killed it. She just absolutely killed it. The acapellas that she did gives me chills, so it's really dope," he said.

Boots also believes Beyonce's song is the perfect accompaniment to the raunchy movie which tells the story of how virginal Anastasia Steele falls for bondage-loving billionaire Christian Grey: "I think falling in love can make you do crazy s**t. That was the spirit of the original song in the first place, we flipped it and it kind of became a whole thing. This is the first time I've ever worked on a trailer."

Jennifer Aniston’s Perfume (Sales) Fading

Jennifer Aniston perfume

Women may want to look like Jennifer Aniston, but they might not want to smell like her.

Sales of the actress' first perfume -- Jennifer Aniston (formerly named Lolavie) -- have reportedly dropped off since debuting earlier this year. Some claim Aniston's lack of promotion is to blame.

"It's absolutely not true," Jennifer's rep said in response to the finger-pointing. "The fragrance was launched specifically for Harrods [in London] and Jennifer went there personally to launch it and to do press."

Naomi Campbell taking a plunge in Vivienne Westwood shoesAn extensive collection of shoes are to go on display in London.

The display, entitled Vivienne Westwood Shoes: An Exhibition 1973-2010, charts the evolution of the iconic British designer’s collection over the last four decades. Going on display at London’s Selfridges department store on Thursday, the exhibition is to showcase almost 200 shoes from the Vivienne Westwood archive, as well as pieces from the designer’s new collection and exclusive designs from her collaboration with cult rubber designer Melissa.

“The exhibition traces the exceptional success of Westwood’s career to date and presents her outstanding artistic individuality. Illustrating her defiance of the rules of wearability and convention, the exhibition is also evidence of her uncompromising quest for superb craftsmanship and attention to detail,” said a spokesperson from the department store.

Vivienne Westwood shoes were the centerpiece of one of the fashion world’s most memorable moments when supermodel took a tumble on the catwalk while wearing the Super Elevated Gillie design in 1993. Meanwhile, her iconic Pirate Boots - which were originally designed in 1981 - have remained popular among the fashion elite to the present day.

Fashion Police: X Factor Contestant Steps Out in New Uggs

Stacey Solomon in new season's Ugg boots

The impossible has been done: UGG boots got uglier. I didn’t think it feasible until I found this picture of X Factor contestant Stacey Solomon, who stepped out in this season’s new UGG boots.

Not only are the boots monochrome striped (Beetlejuice, anyone?), but they are knitted! I refuse to accept the “They’re comfortable” excuse—there’s absolutely no reason to be caught wearing these in public, especially if they look like winter socks.

(Be sure to check out other questionable fashion finds.)

Outdoors Inspire Dsquared

Dsquared Spring/Summer '10While Jeremy Scott looked to the Flintstones for his Spring/Summer ‘10 collection, Dsquared looked to camping.

Designers Dean and Dan Caten even injected the topic into the set of their show at Milan Fashion Week, with curtains drawing to reveal a woodland scene with tents and mirrors resting on trees.

The clothes included cut-off shorts, T-shirts, and jean jackets teamed with vertiginous platform shoes. In case of bad weather, models were given full-length clear plastic macs with neon trims, worn over eye-popping bikinis. Caps were also a big look, with a purple evening gown accessorised with the headgear and a bottle of Budweiser beer.

Men were also catered for at the show, with the twin designers—who recently designed costumes for Britney Spears‘s Circus tour, and have previously dressed Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Lenny Kravitz—dressing them in gardening gloves and leggings teamed with walking boots. More wearable were the suit jacket, shirt and skinny tie combination.


More Images of Jimmy Choo For H&M Leak

Jimmy Choo for H&M

Slowly but surely, more pictures of the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection emerge online, and to be frank, aside from the shoes, I’m not too impressed.

The suede and animal prints are a bit on the tacky side; as for the clothes, I could find the same pieces for most likely less than half the price at Forever 21. The sandals, over-the-knees boots, and men’s footwear, however, are killer.

Check out all 20 images after the jump.

Rachel Zoe Obsesses Over Shoes

Rachel Zoe loves her shoesRachel Zoe has “too many shoes.”

The celebrity stylist, who has worked with Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, and Anne Hathaway, is obsessed with footwear and can’t help splashing out on new pairs.

“I love them, I have way too many shoes.”

Rachel wore a pair of Louis Vuitton Cancan boots, which are thigh-high with laces and a four-inch heel, to the Marc Jacobs show at New York Fashion Week on Monday and revealed that they are her current must-have item.

“These boots, I’ve got to have these frickin’ boots. I love them. And I’m obsessed with them. They take a while to get on, but they’re definitely my favorite boots. Clearly they were not meant for me—on the runway they were on a six-foot model—but I don’t care. I think that’s the whole fun of fashion. You should wear it because you feel like it.”

Rachel is a firm believer in experimenting with different looks and adapting your style to suit the season, but admits that she is always inspired by the ‘60s and ‘70s: “Some of my favorite things are vintage scarves, vintage sunglasses, and great cocktail rings. You find them all over the world at flea markets!”
